Ultimate Question I Have Received:

How do we reach and connect to our military women in the state?

How do we get them the resources and benefits they need?

Why is there such a high rate of Women Veteran homelessness and suicide and how do we reduce it?

We may not have all the answers however, small actions can ultimately save a woman’s life!! Doing nothing may lead to increases to suicide rates and homelessness.
